Grandparent Rights in Rhode Island

Our client was a grandmother seeking to establish grandparent rights. The natural parents were neglectful and at least once had mental health and drug addiction issues. Attorney Heberg was able to establish de facto parent status for our client. After a testimonial hearing our client also received sole custody of her granddaughter and was awarded child support. One of the natural parents was denied visitation. Attorney Heberg was able to effectively enforce grandparent rights in Rhode Island.
